Both of these teams are coming off of losses in their last game, but North Dakota State’s loss came against a top-10 Creighton team. UC Davis did shoot the ball pretty well in their loss to Montana, and they are shooting 49.4% from the field this season. North Dakota State is only at 43.8% from the field, but they have the rebounding advantage. I am going to take North Dakota State and the points in this matchup, as I think their game against Creighton is going to help them more than UC Davis’ game against Montana. Take the Bison here.
